Baba Ijesha is said to have recently killed a snake with his bare hands at the facility. According to Alaroye, the Nollywood actor snatched a large snake from beneath a generating set near the Chief Warder’s office and killed it by slamming it to the ground.

The incident occurred last week while Baba Ijesha was on his way to the facility’s clinic for medical treatment. He noticed some inmates running around helter-skelter and inquired as to what was causing the uproar.

Those present told him that they were attempting to kill a large snake with sticks, iron rods, and stones, but they couldn’t get close to it.

He dashed to the generator where the snake was hiding, shifted it, quickly picked up the snake, swerved it vigorously, and slammed it to the ground, killing it.
